There’s No Easy Path to Asylum, But It’s Even More Difficult for Queer People

Making asylum claims more difficult for members of the LGBTQ community, caravans of refugees — as with those that have traveled up through Central America hoping to reach the United States — are often far from welcoming to queer people. The most recent caravan that reached the U.S.-Mexico border — full of Hondurans, Guatemalans, Nicaraguans and Salvadorans — actually saw a group of around 80 LGBTQ migrants split from the larger caravan. The group, which claims it suffered weeks of discriminatory treatment by both local residents along the journey and fellow migrants, made headlines when it was the first to reach Tijuana, Mexico, weeks ahead of the caravan’s bulk.
